Stick with it

A guy I work with brought in a shoe box today. He took out a eucalyptus branch with fresh juicy leaves and the accompanying eaters - a couple of cool stick insects (Eurycnema goliath).

The female was twice the size of the male.

They don't move much.

He can fly. She can't. She has cool wings that let her glide to the ground if she falls from a tree.

She climbed on my hand with her little hooky claw things. The hand pictured here belongs to her owner.
